THE PHANTOM PAIN OF ROJAVA is a journey into the life of a group of female fighters whose dream is to change the world by starting a women’s revolution.
While the battlefield becomes the real theatre of war, the memories, ambitions and dreams of these women build a metaphoric narration for one of the most heroic resistance in the history, the resistance of Rojava.
